@cypnk I do all my prototyping with lighttpd, python -m http.server, or a bare Node instance, whichever's handy. It shouldn't take multiple person-days to pick a web server!

hmm

I should test emails with emoji in the domains

problem: I can't charge my phone and use the Lightning headset the phone came with at the same time, so my phone's battery is now dying

I'm trying to have a video call while screen sharing a game with audio. Haven't found a single application to do this well yet...

a working solution:
* for webcam: Discord
* for screen and game audio sharing: Hangouts (audio
captured through stereo mix recording device)
* for voice: Signal phone call on iPhone, with earbuds underneath my PC headset

I like the idea of having another /usr hierarchy in ~/.local

@jordyd I do this and also have a separate bin that goes in my dotfiles repo for scripts that are usable on most systems

@Elizafox @gdkar backscatter x-ray hasn't been used in the US for a few years, at least (I always opted out when it was) en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backscat

"Unix for Dummies" was lying on the table at my boyfriend's house. Fell open to this curious page, on which it says that `rmdir` will only delete empty directories, but then goes immediately on to pass a comment that `rd` does not expand to `rmdir` because "rmdir is dangerous enough that you should have to do a little typing if you want to use it."
what?

@vickylai weechat. I use it with glowing bear, an html5 (or electron) frontend

@Elizafox you inspired me to edit mine (lines in the background were previously green)

petition to rename g++ to gsepples

@bhtooefr @HarneyBA @bob I dunno, 16:10 aspect ratio is uncomfortable to me now, since every desktop display I've bought in the past 8 years has been 16:9

@bob @HarneyBA your desktop environment should be able to handle that with scaling/DPI settings, open source graphics stacks aren't as good as Windows it seems

I've used HiDPI for years and Windows and macOS basically do the right thing automatically

@katex @bob
Can we as a society finally talk about how business laptops still stick to 1366x768 in 2018 while even a $150 ultraportable can have a 1080p screen?

over a long enough time period, a sufficiently large group of nerds will end up talking about thinkpads
